Yikes, I mistakenly forward one lousy message at midnight on Saturday
(never mind the eight others I stopped last week)... You are a hard guy to
please, Nick :-).

I don't filter out performance announcements that might only benefit people
in a particular city, or technical discussion that only benefits people who
work with hardware, so why should I filter out a message that only pertains
to those of us in the USA? Dance-Tech subscribers are a very diverse
group. If I filtered out all but the most broadly interesting material,
you would get almost no messages at all.
